Panasonic and UNESCO Jointly Release The World Heritage 2016 Calendar Application


Tokyo, Japan - The UNESCO World Heritage Centre and Panasonic Corporation announced the release of the 2016 World Heritage calendar application for PCs and tablets, starting Monday, 14th December, 2015. The calendar application is available in five languages (Japanese, English, French, Chinese, and Spanish).

After installing the application on a PC or tablet, the user can enjoy stunning photographs of World Heritage sites around the world. The 2016 calendar features, for March, the Tomioka Silk Mill in Gunma Prefecture, Japan, which was recently registered as a World Heritage site; and for August, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games will be held in 2016.

The 2016 UNESCO World Heritage calendar can be downloaded from the following websites.

UNESCO and Panasonic have created wall calendars in Japan since 1995, and calendar applications for PC and iPad/Android use since 2010, with the aim of promoting environmental education through the protection of World Heritage sites. The content was developed and provided with the special aim of promoting youth education centering on UNESCO Associated Schools (9,000 schools in 180 countries worldwide). The calendar content will be further expanded in the future.
